The Lame Horse – Causes, Symptoms & Treatment
by Dr. James R. Rooney
The Lame Horse – Causes, Symptoms & Treatment
The Lame Horse – Causes, Symptoms & Treatment discusses many of the well-known types of lameness in the horse, considering the clinical signs, the cause of those clinical signs, the cause of the lesion, and what might be done to prevent, and in some instances, treat that lesion.

The horse may be considered a large-scale system with two primary goals, maintaining itself and reproducing itself. These two goals are subserved by the integrated functioning of many subsystems, each operating in a specific way to achieve a specific result.

In The Lame Horse – Causes, Symptoms & Treatment, the locomotor subsystem of the horse is examined in detail. This system may be defined as a mechanism – muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments – subjected to an input, the force of gravity, and producing an output, movement (or the special case of movement: standing still) under the control of a regulating system: the central and peripheral nervous system.

The Lame Horse – Causes, Symptoms & Treatment is a great introduction to the locomotor system of the horse. Dr. Rooney examines in detail the normal foreleg of the horse, foreleg lameness, the normal and abnormal rear leg, the vertebral column, and preventing lameness.
